, is this administration hesitant to embrace missile defense for the u.s. why wouldn't we be more forward than we are? >> it's very important question. i think you have seen in this administration a concern about offending in the case of missile defense for us offending the russians when we had plans to put missile defense systems in czech area and poll and. what we are seeing is larger issue is gaza versus israel. it's important to remind people that israelis withdrew from gaza and handed the territory over to the palestinians. so when you hear people saying the problem here is the israelis aren't well to give up land for peace, what we're seeing on the screen and what we are seeing unfold the palestinians don't want hamas does not want to live in peace. they have no concerns at all about killing israeli civilians or putting their own missile launchers where their own civilians will be killed. this president's policy of withdrawing from the world, retreating from the region has put iran in a position where they, in fact, feel emboldened. we saw today reports of the international atomic agency the he
'll also hear from the spokesperson for the israeli defense forces, and the leader of hamas, plus, the reporters on the ground, and we'll look at what transpired over the last 24 hours. it is remarkable there was a cease-fire this hour, when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a look. at mid-day, no sign of a truce yet when a city bus is bombed in tel aviv. at least two dozen were wounded. israeli police say hamas left the bombs on the bus. only one exploded. hamas praised the attack, but the group didn't claim responsibility. farther south, an israeli home was hit by a rocket, room after room, left in ruins. according to the military, more than 60 rockets were fired from gaza today, with more than 40 landed in israel. the others were intercepted. across the border in gaza, the explosions throughout the morning and afternoon. a 100 strikes confirmed by the israelis today before the cease-fire. the sky covered in smoke, the city on edge. cnn's a away -- arwa damon has more. >> reporter: there is a bouquet lying there amidst the rubble. it appears in this case, the tar
's national defense headquarters. a spokesman for the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says this is a terrorist act. this as 100 israeli air strikes have killed more than 27 palestinians. the death toll in eight days there up to 137. the secretary of state hillary clinton is finishing up those direct talks this morning with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. that's happening in ramallah on the west bank. and netanyahu, the prime minister, in jerusalem, another conversation she's having. now she goes to cairo where she's meeting with the egyptian president mursi. mrs. clinton making it clear that she is not interested in a quick fix in gaza. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability, and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> cnn reporters flanking the middle east today to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the crisis in gaza and in jerusalem and in israel. ben wedeman is in gaza city. frederick pleitgen is in ashkelon city. we begin with sara sidner at the scene of that bu
in the streets of gaza city. it is fragile. israeli defense forces say there are five rockets launched from gaza since the cease-fire went into effect. and prime minister benjamin netanyahu's statement was cautious. he said he was willing to give the egyptian cease-fire a chance before there is a need to use greater force. not exactly a ringing endorsement. here's the key thing, while the united states got involved with a visit from hillary clinton this deal was not brokered by the usa. >> this is a critical moment for the region. egypt's new government is assuming the responsibility and leadership that has long made this country a corner stone of regional stability and peace. >> seemingly unexpected leader was egypt's mohamed morsi, a man we've seen at rallies where egyptians chan egyptians chanted we are hamas. it's an impressive feat and the first time that israel has ever negotiated with an islamist government. but there are some shady things about the deal. according to an israeli newspaper, neither side officially signed penned to paper on the cease-fire agreement which raise sometimes que
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
a third were intercepted by the iron dome defense system. this attack, a bomb, a public bus around lunch time, not far from israel's military headquarters. the blast wounded 24 people, added a new urgency to efforts to reach a cease-fire. the military wing of hamas tweeted to israelis, you opened the gates of hell on yourselves. 40 minutes after the bus bombing, our cameras captured this explosion in gaza city. all the while there was a flurry of diplomating activity. secretary clinton met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas in the west bank and benjamin net ya knetanahu in ca. let's go straight to fred pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it app
lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minister ishmael hamiya was hit and killed. as you mentioned, the death toll has now reached 139 according to palestinian medical sources. at the moment, it's relatively quiet, but unless there's real progress broke towards a cease-fire, we may just slip back into this exchange of fire that we have been seeing now for eight days. >> at the moment it's quiet. let me ask you, though, about the leaflets that are dropped from the sky from israel to basically warn civilians in gaza as a heads-up. look, we are sending a mis
participated in the defense department. government doesn't build weaponry. private-sector does that. i presented the figures earlier today with the students and faculty members. in 1980, government contracting with the private sector represented about $47 billion. it was $513 billion in 2008. that is a bit of an increase. you are raising a good question. there are conflicts between government and business that are hard to work out, especially in areas of regulation. they do not like that. there are many ways that the government and the private sector have worked together to produce some of the great achievements in human history. >> please chummy in thanking professor rainey. >> thank you. >> to us for a program on retirement issues for the baby boomer generation. the event features author marc freedman. will open the lines and get your thoughts. organizations are more likely to cut matching contributions than retirement plans. more of that, not beginning at 2:00 p.m. eastern. the united nations security council is meeting to discuss the situation with israel and hamas and the gaza str
seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend
the national defense he headquarters. israeli police confirm that an explosive device detonated but say it was not a suicide attack. the white house is calling the attack against israeli civilians outrage o outrageous. the united kingdom is condemning the, quote, shocking violence. the eight-day conflict between israel and hamas has claimed the lives of more than 130 palestinians and five israelis. despite hopes of a ceasefire, tuesday ended as the conflict's deadliest day. secretary clinton who rushed to the region to try to prevent an escalation of the conflict is in cairo to meet with egyptian president mohamed morsi who is key to brokering any deal. it's her final stop on an emergency round of shuttle diplomacy that also include meetings in israel and the west bank. for the latest nbc's stephanie gosk joins us and ayman mohyeldin. a report of a tel aviv bus explosion. is there any indication that the israelis now are looking at possibly having a short-term truce or want to hold out long er for a longer deal? >> reporter: well, we don't have a truce. there's a lot of talk yesterday t
for the iron dome defense system. the most important meeting is tomorrow with egypt's president morsi. morsi wants american aid for the survival of egypt, and she wants morsi to really pressure hamas to pull back and come up with some permanent agreement. interestingly clinton was going only briefly to ramallah, to the west bank. it will be more than two years since she's been there. that tells you everything, that the more moderate branch of the palestinians really are irrelevant to all of this. the real power is political power, at least, with hamas. >> our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell in d.c. tonight. andrea, thanks. >>> in this country we have been reporting on the rush among some big retailers out there to push the traditional black friday shopping day frenzy into thursday which, of course, is thanksgiving day. now, on top of that, it looks like if you plan on lining up outside your local walmart, you may have company in the form of protesters. our report tonight on all of it from nbc's kristen dahlgren. >> reporter: where they expect to see signs advertising blac
? >> they met about two hours with netanyahu, the defense minister, foreign minister, national security team. they spent two hours, the statement released by the state department says she was briefed on the israeli position of all issues. she wants to see a deescalation of what's going on, she uses the word a calm. they are avoiding the word cease-fire for right now throughout the day, there is speculation coming from hamas and egyptian officials that they were close to a cease-fire. israelis downplaying the possibility. saying they weren't there until they actually had an agreement. no agreement, and if anything, it looks like there was an intensification of the shelling of southern israel today by hamas and an intelligence fiction of israeli attacks in gaza, witnessed by what happened to you guys what you saw over the past hour or two in gaza city. the negotiations will continue tomorrow, hillary clinton as you point out, going to ramallah to meet with palestinian authority leaders and going to cairo to meet with mohamed morsi. i wouldn't be surprised based on what i'm hearing if there is
provoked this completely. israel is acting 100% in self-defense. i feel a little happier if the obama administration were more precise about that and not play the game this is a situation where we have to de-escalate everybody. there is only one side that needs to be deescalated, that is the palestinians. if they continue to do it israel will invade them and have to take matters into their own hands and try to destroy hamas. >> greta: which would be catastrophic to many palestinians. according to the state department when secretary of state hillary clinton met with prime minister netanyahu to talk about this topic about de-escalate. tell me how you think -- what is that conversation? >> i can't imagine. the conversation about deescalation, has to be with the palestinians. i don't know what she would have been saying. don't let them bomb you and don't respond? it's absurd. it's again part of this moral equivalency we've again been going through 20 years in the way we deal with this which only encourages hamas. they are further encourage by the muslim brotherhood running egypt, morsi wh
side of the border israeli defense forces reported that 30 rockets were fired into their airspace, the israeli airspace from gaza but most of those rockets were then destroyed by israel's iron dome security shield that we talked about here last night. five israelis have been killed in the conflict so far. and while israel still hasn't sent ground troops into gaza, get this. 16,000 soldiers are now standing ready at the border of gaza which, of course, makes tomorrow's negotiations all the more critical. so joining me now for prospective on the conflict is hussein ibish a senior fellow at the american task force on palestine. he's coming to us via skype from pompton plains, new jersey. hussein, welcome back inside "the war room." >> thank you governor. >> jennifer: you bet. so what, just to bring people up to speed, what are the palestinians asking for this negotiation? >> well, hamas, to be specific because hamas is not the diplomatic representative. that's the plo but there is this division between the west bank
dome and other u.s.-israel missile defense programs. the bottom line is that is the key here because, as you know, iron dome has been what has been enabling israel to defend itself with all these rockets from gaza raining down. so the promise of even more u.s. aid to grow that system was a big sweetner here to get the prime minister along, trace. >> trace: ed, the president has a complicated relationship with the new egyptian president. >> that's right. president morsey, a member of the muslim brotherhood. there has been lot of weariness about his leadership. bottom line, you will remember a couple of months ago during the campaign, the president said that he wasn't sure if egypt was now an ally. you see secretary clinton was there today though sitting down with president morsey. he has been an important part of getting us to this point. showing some leadership so far though republicans like lindsey graham have trend to cut off u.s. aid to egypt unless he steps up even more. today senator graham, two others republicans said -- put out this tough statement saying, quote: we urge pres

, in terms of the military supplies, the security, there is no is really, not the defense minister, the prime minister, none of the people who complain about obama as putting pressure on israel, none of them disagree with the fact that obama, the obama administration has been the most supportive administration of any on a level of strategic and military cooperation. when you look at this war in comparison to 2008, there was nearly unanimous support for israel. all of the senators, members of the house were saying, israel has got to defend itself. and when the israelis wanted the united states to go in and help for the cease-fire, the secretary of state what they are despite the fact this was not a prior issue. the issue is can the united states support israel, and at the same time be an effective a broker that takes arab interests into account? that has been the issue. it is not the level of support. host: richard, fla. on our line for independents. caller: it has been said that the muslim brotherhood has the same goal as al-qaida in the sense of wanting to establish a radical islamic governm
. >> the iron dome, israel's missile defense system is working phenomenally. many of its rockets, because of this iron dome, are not hitting their targets. could we see more attacks on the streets by terrorists, like in this bus attack? >> that's true, iron dome is an amazing success story, first anti-rocket device in history to actually work in warfare. we've taken down about 90% of the terrorist rockets that would have hit in our cities. they're going to hit outside the cities. and, yes, the terrorists will try anything to get at our civili civilians. we've seen it before. many, many bus bombings like this. we've all lost friends. i've lost a close family member in those bus bombings. they're very, very close for us. >> do activievents like this complicate secretary hillary clinton's efforts? >> they certainly don't help. where terrorists in gaza cannot open fire on us every week and paralyze half the country when they will. also the goal is to prevent iran from smuggling advanced weaponry and rockets into gaza that the terrorists then fire at our civilian. >> israeli ambassador to the

. our operation was purely defensive. our goal was to protect our people so that the population of southern israel would not have to live in daily fear of an incoming rocket. we didn't want this operation. it was forced upon us by hamas's aggressive action. i hope that these understandings reached with egypt and with the good offices of the united states, as well, and we should thank the american government, will hold and that we get peace. that is good for israel. that is also good for gaza. >> mark regev, thank you for joining me. >> reporter: my pleasure, sir. >> abdullah is the charlotte motor speedwmo president of the committee. >> reporter: i hope the americans will not go forward with another mistake. the palestine and the palestine question is indivisible, gaza is part of the palestinian people. and the question of the leadership is authentic. the people elected the leader of the palestinian people. but the americans try to divert their attention from the central issue of how to go about making peace in the middle east, and try to concentrate just how to control one part
's arsenal of weapons. israel had a successful combat debut of iron dome. u.s.-funded defense shield that kept dozens of rockets from hitting israeli civilians. the counter point to that is ironic. hamas emerges a a big winner from this conflict and its truce. >> hamas has emerged stronger. it's consolidated control over gausa. they may yet manage to get an easing of the blockade if a more presence e deal welcome back done. >> look what they've accomplished. they, rather than abbas, has put the palestinian issue back on the international stage. >> reporter: that brings us to those that have lost much in this conflict. mahmoud abbas and his fatah faction. the palestinian leaders were supposed to be the moderate peace brokers. now they can't even claim to speak for all palestinians and proved they have no leverage with hamas, their arch-rival. >> this is not a good outcome for abbas and the two-state solution. >> always a player, riran's han is arguably weaken the. iron dome shot hundreds of missiles out of the sky. what if israel attacks iran? can it still call on hamas to retaliate?
